Early career

While attending Clarke Central High School in Athens, Georgia[1], scouts took notice of Smith's natural athletic ability, which earned him a full scholarship to the University of Tennessee. While at Tennessee, Smith played in both the Sugar and Fiesta Bowl and earned Most Valuable Player honors at the Senior Bowl.

Professional Career

Smith was selected in the second round of the 1992 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. For eight seasons in Atlanta from 1992 to 1999, Smith established himself as an All-Pro defensive end and led the Falcons to Super Bowl XXXIII. In 2000, Smith left Atlanta to join the Carolina Panthers. He ended his career there after one season due to multiple surgeries on his right knee.

Life After Football

Smith works as a personal trainer for other football players. He weighs 50 pounds less than he did during his football career and has spoken out about the health risks associated with the increasing size of football players.[2]
